Swan Hotel, Wells Somerset (Wells)

“Stunningly located old coaching inn opposite Wells Cathedral. Opulent rooms mix tradition with contemporary. Gold embellished wallpaper, chintz fabrics and some have free standing copper baths. Contemporary British fare served in an oak paneled room. Ideal for exploring Wells and its surrounds.”

“Hotels with memorable views are hardly lacking in Britain, but few can match that of the Swan, where the whole glorious 13th century west front of Wells Cathedral fills the windows of the front bedrooms, which include the dramatic Cathedral Suite and a pretty, affordable rooms above. Ongoing refurbishment is making this old coaching inn, stunningly set overlooking the cathedral and its green, a great place from which to discover the delights of Wells, often in the shadow of nearby Bath but equally beautiful in its way.”

The Swan Hotel

"All the new ones are fun but the rooms that are truly vaux le détour are those – just a handful – facing the cathedral."
